I just noticed that my little blog has 100 followers. 100! I know . . . some of you are thinking, seriously? She’s excited about 100 followers?
I remember when I taught first grade we would count the days until the 100th day of school. It was a big deal for a big number. 100 pennies makes a dollar. Living to 100 warrants a fabulous party. So I kind of feel I should celebrate . . . just a tiny bit.
In these days of social media, when teenagers can brag about their Instagram followers in the thousands (seriously?), 100 might not seem like a lot. But when you’re a beginning blogger with only a commitment to think and to write, 100 followers — people I do not know — feels a little wild! I’m not sure why you pressed “follow” but I feel very grateful that you did.
So thank you WordPress and “followers” — I hope that I write words that matter, even in some small way.
